SDB:Configuring the mouse for left handed people

Şuraya atla: kullan, ara

Is there a simple way to configure the mouse for left handed people (that is, to swap the left and right mouse buttons)?


You can easily configure the left handed mouse within control center related to your current Window Manager.

For KDE just open Control Center, then go to Peripherals->Mouse and there you can setup button order.

For GNOME, open GNOME Control Center, then in section Hardware go to Mouse and here you can setup "Mouse Orientation"

For Enlightement just use GNOME Control Center.

In case if your Window Manager will not have such an option in its Control Center, you may be interested in command 'xmodmap'. For example with a 3 button mouse this can be done by execution:

xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1"
